So like -1fps would be like time travel and eventually you'd run out of all that complicated scenery to render like towns and whatnot. So perk up, once you're back before human civilization you should get at least like...18fps easy. Just make sure you have a beefy psu to power your flux capacitor and you're all set.

No at -1 the game is injecting power into my video card. So in other games like CoH, they run extra extra smooth.

This is 1600x1200 with AA and 16xAF. Everything is maxed out except for land sea and air traffic which is turned to minimum....

I only have the demo, but 12 is about what I get on this island at these settings, and on the other island I get about 9fps. Changing resolution has no affect for me. For me anyway I have founf 10+ is at least managable, but anything below that gets to choppy to enjoy. which is why I have just been enjoying my time at the island pictured, as its a good 30% faster than the other. +

I imagine in downtown New york I'd be seeing 5fps with these settings. They chose the island setting in the demo for good reason. lol

Yep that's me!!! lol

Actually its the DSB Design Tornado. The DSB Design Eurofighter is also one of the best planes available.

You can get the Tornado here:
http://www.simviation.com/fs2004military9.htm

Here's another good site for add ons.
http://www.surclaro.com/

FSX has issues with add ons though. I can't get the panels or sounds to load...

Even though I could not get the panels to work its still fun to fly around with some of the FS2004 jets. Its kind of cool to test out how well the graphic engine works with a fast plane.
